Prime Satellite Broadband signs extended 5 year contract for VNO satellite services with Avanti Communications

Prime Satellite Broadband, the Service Division of Prime Satcom Consulting Ltd is pleased to announce that they have signed an extended 5 year contract with Avanti Communications for Virtual Network Operator (VNO) services on the recently launched Ka-band HYLAS 1 satellite. Initially these services will be distributed across the UK and Ireland providing good quality satellite broadband of up to 4Mbps down and 1Mbps up for households and businesses who cannot get broadband services by any other means. These services will be much cheaper to install than before and prices will start at levels comparable to terrestrial services.

Prime Satellite Broadband believe that they will be able to expand their customer base exponentially in the region by the end of 2012. Services will be provided via Avanti’s wholesale agreement for other European countries covered by HYLAS 1 and future VNO expansion is forecast to expand over the whole HYLAS 1 coverage area.

Prime Satellite Broadband has set out a plan to convert all current customers on the Avanti network to use the new HYLAS 1 satellite. All customers are being individually contacted to ensure this plan is implemented quickly and efficiently.

Tareq Khamis, Managing Director of Prime Satcom Consulting Ltd stated “This is an exiting and important milestone for Prime Satcom that rewards our faith in Avanti Communications and their bold entry as a satellite operator with the launching of the first broadband dedicated Ka-band satellite in Europe . We believe that by providing high quality services and first rate support to our customers we will soon lead the market. Our partnership with Avanti is the key to achieving our aims and providing the satellite broadband services that the UK and Ireland deserve”.
